Educating Exceptional Children by Nadra Powell

Children are amazing. They are energetic, eager to learn, and creative.

The discovery of great food is always a worthy venture. After all, cuisine is an excellent expression of local culture. When traveling, it’s always nice to find a fun way to check out the food scene.
